2nd ADC - The 800-Nuns Drubchen

This is indeed a big day for at least the female practitioners of the Dragon Order. Never before, 800 nuns gathered together to conduct the grand ritual, known as Drubchen or the Great Accomplishment Ceremony. This is definitely a great accomplishment and a significant leap the lineage has made to promote the status of female practitioners. With 800 nuns joining together in this very rare ritual, the voice is at least "loud" enough to be heard.
